DOCS Clinic Night at Center for Haitian Studies (CHS)

Sine the grand opening in February 2019, the Center for Haitian Studies (CHS) is one of the three weekly UM student-run clinics near the main UM-Jackson campus. At CHS, primary care is provided to patients in the Little Haiti and neighboring Miami communities. In order to be eligible for care at CHS, patients must live at 200% of the federal poverty level or below.

The DOCS Night Clinic at CHS has been running every other Monday evening since February. We have been able to provide our patients with prima-ry care services, health screenings, routine labo-ratory evaluations, and valuable patient education and counseling. The partnership between CHS and DOCS has led to an increased access of care for those in the Little Haiti community who are unable to make it to the day clinic. We have been working with community partners at local events to ensure that patients are aware of the services we provide at our new clinic.
